Hello everyone,

I'm trying to resize my fedora-root and fedora-home. I have a USB live image to do so. I am trying to use blient-gui to do so but I'm failing for a weird reason saying there is no sufficient space.

This is an image of the free space image description

And here is an image of the error I'm getting when I resize fedora-home from 28GB to 29GB image description

Your help is greatly appreciated. Thank you.

PS: When I run blivet-gui with sudo permissions, I do not get the resizing option.

So if you have no sufficient space it's unlikely that any software will succeed. Shrink your home first to reclaim enough free space.

There is supposedly 20gig of free space inside the LVM, so that should be enough. What the "insufficient free space" is referring to, I have no idea.

@fcomida , I should have 19GB of free space.

@villykruse@hsib allright, I guess your "free space" is not part of any physical volume, you must create a partition, a pysical volume out of it and add the new physical volume to your VolumeGroup and then extend any logical volume. On the command line: fdisk /dev/sda for adding a partition (assuming your free space is on /dev/sda), pvcreate /dev/sdaX (X is the partition number), vgextend /dev/<VGNAME> /dev/sdaX (<VGNAME> is fedora by default). Check yourself if you can do this with blivet-gui.
